Most bloggers title these catch-up, chatty posts “Virtual Coffee Date.” I’d do that today but I don’t actually drink coffee. So in the spirit of authenticity we are drinking kombucha instead and catching up after a week of sporadic blogging. If you don’t drink kombucha, this is the sign you’ve been waiting for.
If we were having kombucha…I’d start by saying thank you for your supportive comments last week. Through the highs and lows I want to keep this space honest yet optimistic. Combining the two can be hard at times so thanks for sticking with me.
If we were having kombucha…I’d tell you that I can’t wait for this weekend! My mom and I are traveling out-of-state for a quick getaway (follow along on Instagram!) and, among other things, I’m looking forward to breathing outside and not suffocating to death. Then I’d ask if you were sick of my heat and humidity jokes. I’d probably say “sorry not sorry.”
What are you doing for Labor Day Weekend?
If we were having kombucha…I might mention that I miss running. Then again, I might not bring it up because there are better things to talk about. In general, I’m still not doing much on the exercise front, aside from the occasional strength training and yoga. I’m slowly working my way back and really listening to my body. I’d like to think I’m a pro at that now!
I’d admit to having a slight FOMO from not running or being active, especially this time of year. I’m combating that by being very mindful of social media usage and giving myself a little breather on that end (aka not using it as much).
If we were having kombucha…I’d tell you about my new favorite leggings. How fun are these fruit-patterned pants from Terez? I got so many compliments when I wore them on Saturday.
If we were having kombucha…I’d ask you if you actually like kombucha. Then I’d tell you that my dad jokingly/annoyingly pronounces it “cam-boo-cha” instead of “com-boo-cha.” Actually he calls it Cam Newton-cha because we like to throw sports into our daily conversations.
If we were having kombucha…I’d admit that I’ve been a bad blogger lately. I’ve actually been writing non-stop, but mostly in a diary-like stream of consciousness. I was trying to form cohesive posts from said stream of consciousness but it wasn’t clicking. I’m trying to not post just for the sake of posting, hence the quiet front last week.
I don’t think I’ll ever have this blogging thing down pat. I’m constantly trying to figure out ways to improve this space while maintaining my core roots. What do you look for in blogs? Why do you return to your favorites?
If we were having kombucha…I’d tell you that Archie (our puppy) got a bad haircut last week and now looks like a mad scientist. Luckily his hair has grown back very quickly so the evidence is mostly gone. Sayonara to that groomer.
If we were having kombucha…I’d tell you I walked into Lululemon and Athleta and left empty-handed. I’d probably ask you to pat me on the back because it was a big accomplishment.
If we were having kombucha…I’d want you to tell me about your life. So fill me in!
